Came in for an afternoon tour and found it was sold out. Staff offered us 2 spots on the last tour and comped the tour fee! Immediately offered us a free sample or two while we waited. Nice informative tour and more beer during the tour. Great setting in old railroad roundhouse across the street from the convention center, CN... More

I've been to a few brewery tours and this one was OK, you get a free taster at the start and end plus a bottle to drink and take around with you. The basic tour is $10 (this incl. tax!) which comes with your choice of either a beer glass or a bottle opener. The place is very cool, sort... More

If you can, by all means, be sure to include a brewery tour (with heaps of amazing Steamwhistle beer)! It's just very busy, so be sure to plan around Blue Jays games!

They built a brewery inside an Historic Train Roundhouse and it looks simply amazing. I recommend the tour. I missed out on the tour because I did not schedule in advance. Still, they let you wander a little bit (within reason) during the day time. Free samples, granted its only one brew but its very popular! Very clean establishment, very... More
